A colleague and I recently had a conversation about the fabulousness of Design Within Reach (aka DWR). DWR is an amazing place for furniture enthusiasts as it carries designs by faves such as Harry Bertoia, Le Corbusier, Charles and Ray Eames, Achille Castiglioni, and Frank Gehry. The designs are top-notch (and the prices reflect this).
My recent DWR-focused conversation sparked a much-too-long session of online browsing (and dreaming and wishing) which has now led to this blog post.
Here are a few of my current faves at DWR (prices are in USD).
Platner coffee table, $1567
Saarinen tulip arm chair, $1840
tripod floor lamp, $395
Jehs and Laub lounge chair, $3100
Sonno Versa mattress, $2595
(I don’t know anything about this, but mattresses are on my mind a lot these days. I like this one because “sonno” in Italian means “sleep”)
And for outdoor living, here’s what caught my attention:
Walter Lamb chaise, $1650
Luau portable lamp, $199
Frank Gehry left twist cube, $299
Thanks to SL for inspiring this post!
I’m thinking about interesting pieces for the patio today. Care to join me in my day dreaming?
This egg hub would be an awesome poolside addition:

This bench with canopy would be great on my deck:

This fun folding director’s chair is super for small spaces:

This chaise (with added cushion) would be great for naps:

And this peacock chair is perfect for when you really want to feel fancy:

So, tell me, what’s your perch of choice in the summertime?
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
I’m completely settling in nicely to summer now that some amazing weather has come my way. I love spending time on any sort of patio…especially if it has comfortable seating. If I had a large enough patio of my own I would seriously consider this piece from Canadian outdoor furniture company Andrew Richard Designs. And a matching footrest would be nice too.
